The other Olympics : Orbit

“I wanted the sensation of instability, something that was continually in movement. Traditionally a tower is pyramidal in structure, but we have done quite the opposite, we have a flowing, coiling form that changes as you walk around it. … It is an object that cannot be perceived as having a singular image, from any one perspective. You need to journey round the object, and through it. Like a Tower of Babel, it requires real participation from the public” 

In this way, Anish Kapoor said of his giant work : Orbit.
Selected from a shortlist of artist’s proposals for a permanent artwork 
for the Olympic Park. Construction started in November 
2010 and was completed in last May.
